Event Planning

21:00 CEST - Race [Private] ~ server goes in race mode, only pilots allowed, weapons disabled

Slots for the race are limited to 16, anybody signing up after the first 16 users will go on a waiting list. One hour before the race you must check-in on challonge if you are going to race. There will be prizes for the winners, courtesy of GeekBeacon Community. Streamers welcome, can attend the race as spectators/commentators (contact me first).

Prizes

1st Prize - Steam Digital Gift Card (€10) + 2 Free Indie Games
2nd Prize - Discord Nitro Classic (1 month) + 2 Free Indie Games
3rd Prize - 3 Free Indie Games
4th Prize - 2 Free Indie Games
5th Prize - 1 Free Indie Game

Rules

Rules are simple: there will be 6 different races of 6 laps each (no weapons allowed, just racing - if your car gets destroyed you’re out of the race - refer to readme.txt inside mod folder for basic rules & tips) - to be eligible for the race you must sign up to the race page on challonge: https://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/mx7amwCiP0

Race Tracks

When the race starts at 21:00 CEST, only pilots and streamers will be allowed to stay on the server, all the rest of the guests must leave and can watch the rest of the event via stream. For each race we will do 1 slow test lap to familiarize with the track, secondly we’ll do 1 qualification lap to determine the starting grid for the race (qualification will be held like a normal race lap and not be done individually otherwise it will take too much time, let’s just have some fun this ain’t no racing game after all ;P). Points will be given to racers who finish each race according to the 10–8–6–5–4–3–2–1 formula (1st gets 10, 2nd gets 8 and so forth until 8th racer). The race tracks will be played in this order:

  1. Strike at Karkand (64) [image]
  2. Road to Jalalabad (64) [image]
  3. Kubra Dam (64) [image]
  4. Mashtuur City (64) [image]
  5. Dragon Valley (64) [image]
  6. Seaside Raceway (32) [image]

Awesome Event last Night. Personaly I hope for more Events like this in our Future. Keep it coming :shark:

More of that. Maybe a own Server, there it would be fun at night to chill!

@Shark.93 Sorry to say but always i click on https://challonge.com/de/bf2battleracer2020 i get: challerrr
Even when i am logged in

Yepp, it seems to have broken the moment I finalized the end results. I have sent an e-mail to the challonge helpdesk so that they can fix the race page. The “Standings” page (the one that isn’t working) will be pretty sweet once it does, it shows timings and points for each race.

By the way I posted all best lap times for all races here, including overall points and total times (basically like challonge, but additionally you can see best times): lost-soldiers.org/v2.php?site=forum_topic&topic=1610#17932

This is the main stream from the commentator, unfortunately he could cover only 4 of the 6 races. Stream has been highlighted: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/758528365

Rotblut also recorded his perspective, and so did many other drivers who were also streaming it (like Bremaine, Shvanni, Dominiko). Funny thumbnail my friend :smiley:

The Challonge Support is still taking a look at it, passed the case up one level to Developers but I think I’ll have to wait some more, uff. There’s no rush, eventually it will get fixed; I hope the race data is fine though, I don’t really fancy submitting it all over again. :sweat_smile:

Anyways I share with you the video made by Dominiko, it’s all strictly 1st person view and it is very well done, really gives you a sense of immersion and it’s also widescreen (@Holler aehm!).

Also, funniest stream highlights!! :slight_smile:
